Phil and Friends has performed some incredible music over the past decade and I am so thankful for that.
This show was excellent and the soundbaord recording is really really terrific.
Subject: Dead enough
Obv. Bob & Phil can do whatever they want to do--it's their band after all. However, from a fan's point of you, I really really REALLY wish that they would let others (anyone else really . . .) sing the Jerry songs.
Also wish that Bobby would give it a rest when it comes to "talk" singing & his attempts at reinterpreting the songs by his unusual phrasing & such. I guess he's just trying to "keep it fresh" or whatever, but . . . it doesn't work. Not trying to be critical, just being honest.
Subject: Sick Show
Subject: Circle completed(4now)
Subject: A style.
Warren has a blues feel to DEAD music, which i LOVE. while JK brings it back to that Jerry-style.
whats important is that its honest. thats all i expect, try hard, do your thing, and ill dig it. Every time. Phil&Friends is great, Ratdog is great. The DEAD is great. and Furthur is great. but nothing will be as great as the good 'ol Grateful Dead. Five stars for great music and great effort. and most of all. Great Love.
Subject: I am impressed...
This show is full of inspired versions of Dead classics. Don't pass this by!
Subject: The Boys are on tonight
Awesome to get live music of this caliber from these guys after all these years.
Subject: Best of the three nites
Great show, great instrument quality, decent but sometimes inconsistant vocal mixing (not a flaw of the recording, but of the sound at the time.) I can surely say that these boys are in a comfortable state by the time night 3 rolled along.
As opposed to the uneven and strangely alienating 9/18 opener jam, night 3 is powerhose nite! One mighty drum intro minute, wasting no tuning time until a Samson opener! Obviously not taking much of a cue from Dead setlists, Furthur is just exploring the possibilities of these long established and toyed with tunes. Everyone has had their different arrangements.
Its valid to argue that Warren might have a more harmonious blend to the mix of vocals, but i still think that this rendition has a uniquely solid musical understanding of everything that has happened since 1995. And i like Furthur since they play venues like Oakland Fox, Civic Center, ie. small venues rather than "The Dead" tour's stadium arena blowout. Just be happy the boys are going on to mess around with their music more. In a good way...
The highlight for me was obviously Pride of Cucamonga>Jam>Throwing Stones. So nicely segued together and good group interaction throughout. Chimenti is finally turned up loud enough to do him justice!!!
It seems like it could be sooo easy to pick anything and everything about this sort of project apart. I for one am soo happy that Phil broke away from Jackie Green greatest hits land and Bobby is stepping up from Ratdog for this project. Thanks for continuing to play guys!
Subject: At long F#$king last!!
These 3 nights are unquestionably the best I have heard any combination [ and yes..including DSO] since Garcia passed, in terms of both music AND spirit.
Goddam..Mickey and Bill would've lowered the energy quotent [as they did the last 10 years or so of The Grateful Dead IMHO]and as for some critics dissing Phil and Bob for bringing in JK..
I get your point, but certainly don't agree. With all due respect to the other hired gunslingers down the years, eg Warren Hayes, Jimmy Herring et al, they just do not get 'IT' and never will. JK obviously has [and does]
PLEASE PLEASE come to Europe!! Phil hasn't been for getting on 20 years now, so come on!!! Shake a leg goddamit!!!
Subject: Good stuff.
Subject: Worth every second
The short version is that I attended all three of these shows, and boy-oh-boy: will all due respect to all their wonderful past efforts, this one is the best effort to date for Bobby and Phil (since Jerry). (To put this in context, I attended more than 100 GD shows.)
Bobby's voice is stronger than ever and his guitar playing economical and precise. Phil's playing is stronger than ever and he appears liberated by having Bobby and not having to play the role of band-leader.
The various helpers (JK, Chimenti, and the drummers) are super and really fit in well.
Listen/download this today and you will not regret it.
Obviously I plan to attend NYears.
